Public Lecture (Miami USA ’90)

Question: What method can you use for a lay person?

Question: What method can you use for a lay person? It’s very difficult to develop this sensitivity.
Shri Mataji: You see but that’s what it is in the Kali Yuga, in these modern times only, when we are surrounding by all these things, we get into confusions and illusions and this kind of a subhranth stithi as they call it in Sanskrit language, is very important because in that only we have started seeking. Can you imagine Christ had only twelve disciples, only twelve, so how many were there seekers, and all these great gurus, how many disciples they had who were realized souls, very few.

So, today is a special time, is already described, if you are an Indian you’ll know from Naladamyanti. The Nala once got hold of this Kali and he said, “I must kill you because you have tortured me, you have separated me from my wife and you are the one who create all this confusion.” So he said, “All right you can do it but you must know my importance my mahatmyam.” He said, “What is your importance?” He said, “At the time when I’ll be ruling” means modern times “at that time those people who are seeking the truth in the valleys and on the Himalayas will find it while they’ll be householders and they’ll find it.”

It’s already described in Indian if you have read also the Nadigranth is described that this was going to happen, everything in details has been described. If you have read William Blake you will find he has described it, Lewis has described, so many people have described these times and have called it as Aquarius Time because this Kundalini is inside the triangular bone which is the Aquarius, is known as the Aquarius, I mean they are talking about it, but instead of beating the bush you see, we should really get to it. Get to it.

Question: What is the role of thought in the process of Self Realization?

Question: What is the role of thought in the process of Self Realization?
Shri Mataji: I’ve already told you that when we think, we think Place hand on the crown chakraof the future and the past, but at this moment is the thing that’s reality is, the present is the reality, so what happens because of our special type of a brain that we have a prismatic, every time we react to this, to that, to that and all the time we are reacting and especially in America I find there are so many choices that you go on choosing between one to another to another to another this is maddening. We are all the time thinking, thinking, thinking we cannot stop it, but after Realization you are at peace. If you want you can think, if you don’t want you need not think. I must tell you, a Swiss doctor told Me: “Mother you cut my throat do what you like, but stop this thinking, I’m fed up.”

Question: How do you balance one’s problems?

Question: How do you balance one’s problems?
Shri Mataji: Yeah, I’ll tell you now what is the problem is, now if you see it clearly [SHRI MATAJI POINTS TO THE CHAKRA CHART] there are three lines you see them, okay? These are the Subtle System Chakra Chartthree channels we have of autonomous nervous system. The two channels the one is the left and another is the right and the central one is the parasympathetic nervous system and these two are left and right sympathetic nervous system so before Realization whatever we do we can only go to the left or to the right with our effort, for example, now supposing, you want to increase the rate of your heart, you have to run, if you run rate will increase, but you cannot decrease, automatically it happens through the parasympathetic nervous system, so whatever you try like this any this psychotherapy, this therapy, that therapy, you are putting in your effort, isn’t it?

But here you get connected with that power which sooths you down, which looks after you, which works it out by itself, and if you really know how to keep your connection all right you don’t have to worry.

So this is.. you don’t have to retain a doctor, you don’t have to go to a psychiatrist, nothing of the kind, automatically you are looked after, because now you are connected, but before this you have to put in an effort, this is effortless.

Question: Is Sahaja Yoga your own philosophy…?

Question: Is Sahaja Yoga your own philosophy, did it exist before you?
Shri Mataji: It’s an ancient thing, it’s described in all the scriptures. It’s not today’s. Sahaja Yoga is not Shri Matajitoday’s thing. Only the difference between the old Sahaja Yoga and this Sahaja Yoga is this that I’ve worked out a method in which en masse Realization can be. First thing. Secondly, without cleansing you, without making you work it out I thought of raising the Kundalini somehow. Once the Kundalini breaks through you get a light and in that light you start seeing yourself then you correct yourself, I don’t have to tell you.

Like supposing now you are holding on to a snake, all right? And it’s all darkness if I tell you it’s a snake you may say no it’s not a snake, it’s not a snake at all, it’s a rope. What’s the use of arguing? The more I argue the more you’ll hold on to it till it bites you, so the best thing is to put little light there so you see, so this is the difference only we can say that somehow or other now the Kundalini just rises and gives you a power by which you become your own guru, your own master and you correct yourself.

Overnight I’ve seen people have given up drugs, overnight, thousands, over night people have given up alcoholism, overnight people have been cured, overnight, so it’s something tremendous and this tremendous power must be harnessed, must be used which is there lying within you. No amount of answering questions it is going to do, it has to work out. It has nothing to do with the answering of questions or my lectures, it’s something which has to work out.

Question: Do you believe in reincarnation…?

Question: Do you believe in reincarnation, because you say that some people in India won’t even kills bugs because they believe it’s reincarnation?

Shri Mataji: I? You see actually to be very frank you know I’ve become very clever. You see Christ talked, said, that He was the Son of God and I tell you He was, but you crucified Him, so I’m very clever. I’ll not talk about Myself. First you have your Self Realization because I don’t want to get crucified by any chance so you all first get your Realization and understand Me that is the best way.
